The Government, Employers and Union will meet Thursday in Algiers, for the second time in 2014, to assess the pace of the implementation of their commitments taken during their last meeting in Friday, as part of the Economic and Social Pact of Growth.
The tripartite meeting agenda will be centered on the assessment of the application of the recommendations relative to the Economic and Social Pact of Growth, resulted from its last meeting last February 23rd.
The partners of this Pact set objectives of speeding up the process of economic reforms, the industrial development, improve business climate and health system and the social protection.
They committed to facilitate access to job and improve purchasing power, adapt training system with the company needs as well as energy security.
A national committee has been installed for the follow-up of the implementation of those commitments, by associating the concerned parties.
Furthermore, the three partners will discuss the decisions to be taken to apply the abrogation of Article 87a of law 90-11 on labor relations.
This article stipulates that "the national guaranteed minimum wage (SNMG) must include the basic salary, bonuses and allowances, whatever their nature, with the exception of compensation paid to cover expenses incurred by the worker.”
The revision or the abrogation of the article 87a should raise the basic salaries lower than the SNMG, i.e. DZD18,000.
"This new measure will consolidate a minimum income and improve the wages of low occupational categories, and give the companies more flexibility to reward better returns for workers," according to the final communiqué of the last tripartite.
The application of this decision, long demanded by labor unions was introduced in the Finance Bill 2015.
